SPATA AND BISHTA NEWS - 4th August 2021
Congratulations to Jack Laugher MBE on his Bronze Olympic Win!

In 2020, many of you will have met Jack Laugher, who was BISHTA and SPATA's VIP guest at the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards ceremony in Coventry. Jack joined us in the evening to present some of our top industry awards. Last year, he also worked with PIP when he was featured as our celebrity sports social media influencer in the national #everydaycation campaign.  
At the Tokyo Olympics, Jack Laugher won bronze for Team GB in the individual 3m springboard event. Jack said he had regularly cried himself to sleep after a dip in form starting at the 2019 world championships. After the event, the 26-year-old tweeted: "This medal means more than any I've ever won before. Overcoming my mental health struggles after failing in 2019 and going through a very similar issue to Simone Biles - today felt great. I'm back, baby."
Complete Pool Controls sponsors Jack, and we would like to thank them again for their generous gift in sharing Jack's time for the above PR opportunities.
